Rui Ma

Staff Research Associate

Rui Ma serves as a Staff Research Associate at the clinic. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Pennsylvania State University. Prior to her affiliation with CAPPS, Rui spent two pivotal years in a psychiatric hospital in Beijing, concentrating her efforts on first-episode psychosis and those at clinical high risk. Further broadening her expertise, she collaborated with Dr. Jason Schiffman’s lab at UCI, primarily contributing to ProNET and other multisite studies.

What truly drives Rui’s passion is a profound interest in understanding social cognition, social functioning, and family dynamics within diverse populations at clinical high risk.
